Who cares what's the weather like when you have spring vibes at home. Is there a better way to link your outdoor and indoor than splashing a blossom wonderland at the entryway? I don't think so.
Four important factors for me when designing:
This is the only relationship where compromise is not an option :). We are so lucky to have wonderful makers with great taste and ethos. Thanks to them I was able to put together this beautiful design (if I do say so myself :).
About The Design
I would suggest starting with the wallpaper. I removed diagonally left corner of the wallpaper and painted the gap with matching paint to allow the coat hanger to pop.
Next thing - find your favourite couple of birds and hang the shelf so it looks like they are sitting right on top of it.
To have it aesthetically more pleasing - naturally, the console takes the less busy corner, making sure it's not sitting just in front of the doors. Instead of a bench or a chair, I decided to get this cute Beeble Pouffe by Tom Raffield that can be easily tucked away when not in use.
All the pieces from floor to ceiling are sustainable and designed with care every step of the way. If you fancy any items here is where to source and total approximate budget:
1. Burgh Coat Hook & Housel and Lindy Shelves | Ash Wood Accessories | Tom Raffield
"Sustainably designed and handcrafted in South Cornwall, Tom Raffield’s iconic homeware collections draw inspiration from the natural world. This new collection celebrates the beauty of ash wood in all its varying tones and grains, making for a cohesive yet unique range of products.
Sustainability is really important to us, so using ash wood was the obvious choice for this collection as it’s the fastest growing hard wood and also self-seeding, which means it grows in plentiful supply. This durable and supple material, paired with our ecological process, allows us to create these complex shapes with minimal wastage.”– Founder, Tom Raffield.
2. The Nordic Oak Console Table | Adventures in Furniture
"Our focus is on carefully considered design with many custom options, handmade quality and beautiful, responsible materials. We are very proud of our workshops and friendly staff - great products and people are what make us special. Together we can rise to the environmental challenges that we all now face."
3. Beeble Pouffe | Tom Raffield
"Intuitive, dynamic, versatile. The Beeble Pouffe's playful design means it can be picked up and moved around to offer seating in response to a myriad of spaces. Handcrafted from sustainably sourced wood and featuring a leather handle detail, the Beeble comes upholstered in the highest quality, contract grade wool, complementary to the Tom Raffield collection. Be good to yourself. And clever with your space."
4. Blossom Wallpaper | Petronella Hall
"Long tailed tits chatter in the Hawthorn blossom, our Kent countryside in springtime; you can't beat it."
